Temple Announcement

On October 2, 2022, President Russell M. Nelson announced plans to construct the Lone Mountain Nevada Temple at the October 2022 General Conference. Lone Mountain is on the northwest side of the Las Vegas metropolitan area. Nearly 6% of Nevada’s population are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. There are about 180,000 Latter-day Saints in more than 360 congregations in the state. The temple will be the state’s fourth. The Las Vegas Nevada Temple was dedicated in 1989, and the Reno Nevada Temple was dedicated in 2000. Ground was broken for the Elko Nevada Temple in 2022 and was under construction at the time of the announcement. Shortly after Latter-day Saint pioneers arrived in the Western United States in the 1840s, they established a trading post near Carson City (now the state’s capital).2


Temple Facts

The Lone Mountain Nevada Temple will be the ninth temple built in the same city as another operating temple, the Las Vegas Nevada Temple (1989), making Las Vegas, Nevada, the ninth city in the world to have more than one temple, following South Jordan, Utah; Provo, Utah; Lima, Peru; St. George, Utah; Guatemala City, Guatemala; Rexburg, Idaho; Santiago, Chile; and Mexico City, Mexico.
